Now I will bore you with some web design talk.
I own b9mx.com with GoDaddy because my Tumblr name was Benign-Mx and I used a custom domain. The Mx was for Freehand Mx which was the theme of my art blog. Benign was just a word I thought could be B9, for a short memorable domain.
I can’t use it as an addon domain with my GoDaddy hosting because I’m on the cheap package that only allows 1 domain. But I can create the illusion of hosting it with domain masking, in my GoDaddy domain forwarding thing. It turns out that it just displays my other website in a single frame html frameset.GoDaddy thought they could trick me into upgrading my hosting by giving me a free domain that I can’t use with this hosting package because it’s 1 domain only.
So now I’m putting my webcomics on b9mx.com just like when I was on my b9mx Tumblr domains, even though it’s not really B9mx.com anymore and frames have disadvantages like no url copying or title.
- http://b9mx.com/ will become http://jakeis.com/fhmx
- http://comipo.b9mx.com/ is http://jakeis.com/comipo
It’s handier if you just use the direct links to the jakeis.com links. This is just a way for anyone who still ‘members b9mx.com so they can get a vague frame redirect to my new domain.
In other news, my old scripts host and Tumblr scripts blog domains redirect to my Greasyfork profile without masking.
http://script.b9mx.com/ and http://scripts.b9mx.com/
both will become (or may be still propagating)
If you notice the @namespace of my userscripts always points to script.b9mx.com, my old hosted script folder. Now I only have to update one set of scripts. See before I had to update the hosted version and the Greasyfork version.
Update: Just using 301 redirects instead of masking now. It seems to be more search engine friendly.
